    Hi there,

    As of the update to Graphene 1.6 it became possible to comment video posts (and other of the theme post formats). I would like to see the comment count or the link “leave a comment” near the posts on my front page/archives. The design is just perfect, but it does not encourage people to comment a video posted in that format.

    As well, I noticed that it is obviously possible to add a short description to an image (http://dev.khairul-syahir.com/wordpress/graphene/blog/post-format-image/). Probably the Excerpt field is used for this? (I didn’t try this myself, but for a video or audio post I could not find an option. The Excerpt field would show if I post the article on facebook for example, but does not show on the actual post.)

    If you could add this in a future update, it’d be great 🙂

    It’s the caption field that is used.

    do you mean the image caption that is entered when uploading an image via WordPress? If so, there is no option to enter a “caption” for video’s that are embeded via youtube or in the post settings.

    Yes, it is the image caption. And no, there is no equivalent for videos. (There might be a workaround if your handy with html.)

    Comment count:

    You can add that to each post using a Graphene action hook widget area and a PHP widget. I’ll write a tutorial if you are interested. Just let me know.

    Added as well. Videos post format will use the content from the manual excerpt field.
